Ralf Berger

Home Works

Homeless works, 2001, performance and video installation

“Our brain has no direct access to the world. It is totally concerned with itself. The world is in our head. Everything that exists takes place within our cranium. This cramped space is the theatre wherein the reality of the world drama is played out, our existence having generously paid for the entrance ticket. We have the best seats, and look at ourselves on the stage where we make our entry. Interiors and exteriors are all one. Interiors and exteriors are volumes with which sculptors among others have sought to come to terms. Ralf Berger (Düsseldorf, 1961) is a sculptor, and it is precisely this volume within our skull that he has turned into his favourite working material, which he seeks to investigate and thematize.” (Harald Uhr in catalogue: Szenarien, Bonner Kunstverein, Stadthaus Ulm, 2001/2002)

After two solo-shows at Ellen de Bruijne Projects (1999 and 2001), Ralf Berger will return at the gallery once again with three new installations with video, and a life performance on the opening at 18.00 hours.

Exhibition: 28/05/04 – 03/07/04
